Upper Coffee Pot: great place to teach kids

July 12th, 2009 · No Comments

The Upper Coffee Pot campground is right on the Henry’s Fork, in the Mack’s Inn area. This is an outstanding place to teach kids to fly fish. The wading is very easy, the fish are very willing, and everytime that I’ve been there, the fish are rising.

A 2 mile dirt road leads to the campground. There is an area for fishermen to park, and a trail leads to the river. The best fishing is another 200 yards downriver from the campground.

If I’m out to just get the kids the joy to catch and release fish, I’ll put on a soft hackle and help them cast a wet-fly swing. The fish can grab at any time, but frequently when the swing is complete and the fly straight downstream. This is a very user friendly way to fish here.  Dry flies and nymphs work well also.
